Tyee High Mascot Retirement and School Design Information Night is Thursday, July 21

From our sister site The SeaTac Blog:

Tyee alumni Dave Sousa, Robin Adams and Deana Anderson pose behind a school sign. Sousa volunteers at the Highline Heritage Museum and will help install many of the Tyee Totem objects on long-term loan as part of the museum’s school district history exhibit.

Help Highline Public Schools retire the Tyee High Totem mascot with families, staff, alumni, community members and friends of Tyee on Thursday, July 21 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Tyee High School.

The Totem (left) will become a Titan (right) for Tyee High School,

At this event, you can also learn about the design of Integrus Architecture’s new school and learn about the November bond that would fund the construction of a new school.

Everyone is welcome.

This event will include:

    • A presentation in the cafeteria will remove the Totem and introduce the Titan mascot.
    • Tyee alum Robin (Foster) Adams, Class of 1971 compiled a story about the Totem mascot on his blog.
    • See the new home of many Totem objects, which will be on display at the Highline Heritage Museum later this year.
    • Hear from our Native Education Program staff about the state law governing this transition and the district process that was guided by input from the Muckleshoot Tribe.
    • Hear the students’ thoughts behind choosing their new mascot, with a nod to history, and join us in supporting their school’s Tyee pride well into the future.
    • Tour the campus, including the library and gymnasium.
